Ribbing from Poole

Hi There
I'm keen to know if there are any Rhib 'clubs' or 'associations" in Poole (harbour).I want to do some long range cruising, cross channel etc.
If not, are there any poolites that want to form such a 'club'?

Not aware of anything "official" - and neither of the 3 main yacht clubs (Parkstone, Poole or Royal Motor) have a dedicated RIB section. However there are a number of members on here that regularly launch in and around the Poole area.

I don't really have the fuel tanks for long range stuff, but I'm up for shorter distance cruises etc.

Good to know there's someone out there from Poole! (We don't all have straw in our hair you know!)
Are you planning any Autumn jollys. Where do you launch?

In theory yes - although there's sometimes a conflict of interest between family commitments and ribbing Looking forward to the 10kn limit coming off in the harbour for Autumn as its a right pain having to pootle along at such a pedestrian pace just to get out of the harbour. Always launch from Parkstone YC as I sail from there in both dinghies and cruisers. What about you .. Baiter? Cobbs Quay?

If you want to meet for a pre-jolly pint, PM me a phone number and we can have a slurp and natter.

I sail on another Elan, not based at Poole but with a well known Poole Harbour pilot as owner/driver!

I couldn't decide whether Andrew was another one of the 333 owners that make up the Spinnaker Yachts fleet. There is another Andrew (a doctor, I believe) that owns Fandango and I mis-read AndrewH's profile and got Physicist and Physician mixed up.

Say hi to uncle Jim for me!!!!! He's got a real Flair for that sailing lark!
I'm sure Andrew will spill the beans.
